The importance of candle cannot be denied even in this modern era. Candles increase the mood of any dining experience. Although candles can set a romantic mood, the appeal of a burning candle goes well beyond that. The beauty of a flame fascinates and touches humans on more or less primitive level. According to the experts, this love of watching flames while dining is embedded into the human psyche.
Primitive humans huddled around open fires for cooking, heat, and protection from wild beasts. This evolved into indoor fireplaces used for cooking, heating, and light. Ultimately this was replaced by fireplaces used only for light and heat.

The great photographer Bill Beckley started his career as a conceptualist, posing as George Washington. He came upon this idea by chance while driving along the Delaware River on March 20, 1969, looking for a spot to drip a line of paint across a body of water. He planned to document the act with a camera, just as Dennis Oppenheim, Robert Smithson, and others at the time were documenting their fleeting outdoor sculptures. He chose, by chance, the place where Washington crossed the Delaware before taking the city of Trenton and winning the Revolutionary War. While crossing the river, He slipped, and as He discharged all weight, in a struggle to get to the surface, lost the camera along with his cans of paint.
Chaim Gross is one of the famous artist in wood carvings. He was born in 1904 and left the world in 1991. He was very popular among local, national, and international audiences for his direct wood carvings of proud circus performers, confident urbanites, and intimate mother and child pairings. Gross gave these modernist subjects in a style that joined traditional and folk forms. His art emerged from a rich Eastern European background and solid artistic training, first in Budapest and Vienna, and then in New York City.
